Western Health Updates on Services Restored

Nov 18, 2021

Western Health is providing an update about the IT systems outage which will continue to impact a number of health-related services. We recognize the impact on residents in the region and apologize for the inconvenience. We continue to work diligently with the Newfoundland and Labrador Centre for Health Information (NLCHI), to assess the situation and work toward restoring full functionality to IT systems.

While many services have been restored, the following out-patient services continue to be impacted by the IT systems outage:

  • EKGs
  • Pulmonary Function Tests

Work is ongoing to restore these services. If you have questions or concerns you may call the temporary patient inquiries line at 1-833-879-0390.

Patients are advised to answer unknown telephone numbers as it may be your health-care team calling to schedule an appointment.

If you require emergency services, please call 911 or proceed to your nearest Emergency Department.
